To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the IADC returned to the site of one of the dredging industry’s most notable triumphs – Hong Kong. An exciting one-day conference considered the future of Asian development.
In just 32 months, some 200 hectares of land for a new international theme park were reclaimed from the sea - under extremely strict environmental standards.
Site investigation techniques developed during recent reclamations have created a detailed stratigraphy of Hong Kong which can improve accuracy in planning, design and construction.
In addition to hydrographic surveys, special 3D geostatistical visualisation software was essential to the control of dredged volumes and levels.
